Description

WITCHES, MARTYRS, BODYSNATCHERS, ZULUS and RIOTING PEASANTS! * The BLACK DEATH in Chelmsford! * The HORRIBLE true stories of the MOAT FARM MURDER and THE DEATH OF JAEL DENNY! * The terrible tragedy of the GREAT FLOOD of 1880! * The INCREDIBLE histories of HYLANDS HOUSE and BEAULIEU! * NAZI BOMBERS over CHELMSFORD! Chelmsford has one of the darkest histories on record. From the skeletons lying underneath the city - which include a woolly mammoth - to the executions of thieves, witches, martyrs and murderers at Chelmsford's gaol, this book will change the way you see the town forever. Robert the Bruce was most likely born here; Bloody Mary Tudor lived here; infamous murderers Samuel Dougal and Thomas Drory died here. Including more than sixty rare illustrations, plus an eight-page colour section, read it if you dare!show more
